Los Angeles and Orange County Best Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Joe Latter and since 1999 I have been traveling the world, camera in hand documenting one amazing love story after another. Being based in Southern California has allowed me access to every destination type that my clients can imagine. Within minutes we can shoot at one of California’s beautiful beaches or mix it up with a gritty downtown urban session. A little further and we can be in scenic foothills, the sand dunes, the snowy mountains, a redwood forest, dry lake beds, a small barn or even your favorite winery. And if your sense of adventure matches mine, then lets travel to your favorite place in the world for the photos you always dreamed about.

Best Destination and International Wedding Photographer

Prior to becoming a wedding photographer I started my career as an editorial and fashion photographer which allowed me to travel the world for many different ad campaigns. Luckily as a wedding photographer I have been able to revisit many of these places to photograph my couples in their dream destinations. This could be couples that live here in Southern California and decide to travel somewhere for their wedding, or couples that live outside of California but want me to come visit them for an engagement session in their hometown and so other times where we both decide to meet at their location somewhere on the planet. My passport is always up-to-date as well as my knowledge of the sometimes confusing rules of working in other countries. I’ve been lucky enough to work in San Francisco, Sacramento, Monterey, Palm Springs, Temecula, Nampa, Sonoma, Seattle, Las Vegas, Park City, Telluride, Santa Fe, Houston, Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, Miami, Chicago, New York City, Boston, Oahu, Kuaii, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. John, Bahamas, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, Rosarita, Vancouver, Paris, Greece, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, and more… Below are just a few of the many locations I have gone to with my clients.
